are always quick to blame president obama when the market goes down. do you think they are going to give president obama credit? do you think they are going to thank him when the market goes up, up, up? of course not. we will tell you why. we will talk about that and awhole lot more, with the latest, today's current news update in los angeles, here is lisa ferguson. good morning, lisa. >> hey bill. good morning, everyone. here is what's on the president's schedule today. first up, he is having lunch with hillary clinton in the private dining room at the whitehouse at 12:30. yesterday, the senate confirmed senator john kerry to replace clinton as secretary of state in an overwhelming vote of 94 to 3. clinton was having an interactive online interview. as she heads out the door, she is leading -- leaving a legacy the most traveled secretary of state in history. more 950,000 miles, visited 112 countries and held 1700 meetings with world leaders. next up for the president today. he is talking immigration reform at 3:55 and 4:15. yesterday, obama unveiled his new
president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includ
, which i believe is what happened this time. exhibit a, obama is upside down in his approval ratings on every economic usher. it is accepted wisdom that he had a negative job approval on handling the economy, taxes, unemployment, spending, gas prices. we are not the only people who knew that. chicago knew that, too. they were good to do something about that. then it was, about 42%. romney has been a job creator. he has made things. he has balanced budgets. he has hired and fired people. he will take a business experience and put it to washington. a couple things wrong with that. one is, the economy by itself, romney and obama were 43 and 44% each. you need 51% or above to win. the obama people kept adding points for women, immigration, hurricane sandy. they were able to get their realization that economy may be most important,, but it is not the only thing. you only had to choose one candidate, you do not have to choose one issue. where do people who believe in free well, human reason, intelligence and your ability and have issues that are important to you. now republicans dealing wi

at least 200 additional. a federal appeals court struck down president obama's recess appointment of 3 commissioners to the national relations board. one senator is publicly calling the federal commissioners to resign and the rulings they made to be invalidated. a republican from nebraska is here now. senator, thank you for your time today. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> what do you make of this ruling, basically saying, the three folks that the president appointmented to the board, it was unconstitutional, they were no good? >> it's the right ruling. the court of appeals looked at what the president did and said, look, youacked unconstitutionally. you can't declare when congress is going to be in recess, which is exactly what president obama tried to do. so they said, not only are the members unconstitutionally, but the action that they took is also illegal and unconstitutional. and they voided that. so the presidentee got a mess on his hands. these members who are still up there, there are two still up there, in my judgment, need to step down and step down now. >> are you call

's relationship with president obama, as she gets ready to step down as secretary of state. >>> and new york city apartments get even tinier. could you live in a space smaller than some hotel rooms? i'm wolfe blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> some top republicans aren't mincing words about the parties' problems during their winter meeting in north carolina right now. one gop star is going so far to suggest that the party has been stupid. i asked the newly re-elected rnc chair about that and more. joining us now, the chair of the republican national committee. thank you for coming in. congratulations on getting re-elected. how do you feel about that? >> well, i feel great about it. but with a great opportunity, i think that comes incredible responsibility. >> i listened to bobby jindal, the louisiana governor, a republican, maybe someday a presidential candidate. he is mincing no words in criticizing the republican party. listen to this. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. time for a new republican party that talks like adults, to articulate our plans and our visio
the constitution and not be bogged down by a legacy of torture. i think president obama's upon of john brennan sends the message to all americans. >> you worked with him, directly for him. did he receive internal updates regularly about the torture techniques including waterboarding, as orders is reporting? >> i worked for him when he was an analytic manager. it was before he really hit the big time. but again, i think it is impossible for him not to have gotten these briefings, for him not to have been intimately involved in the policy by virtue of his senior position. some of the senior most positions in the cia, it is impossible he did not know what was going on. >> john kiriakou, you will be going to prison shortly. t know exactly when your prison sentence will begin? how are you preparing for this? you're the father of five children. >> i don't know exactly when this will be. it will be sometime in the next four to six weeks i will have to report to a prison somewhere. i don't know where. frankly, it is very hard to prepare. you have to do things like a range power of attorney, a range ch
criminal conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we ruling. acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell. support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line. caller: i am confused because i am getting background noise or something. i want to ask about the benghazi situation. in the hearings the other da
will produce $3 trillion in additional tax revenue to pay down deficits and the debt. by the way, that is more than barack obama hopes to get through his massive tax increases. there's more revenue through growth than there ever could be through tax increases, which is one of the ways, by the way, when i'm debating those on the left and they say they're for revenue, i inevitably agree. i'm for roirve, too. the best way to have revenue, i say, sit down with those in the business sector and i say i'd love to double your taxes. they look at me and think, did i come to the wrong meeting? i say i'd love for next year your profits to double and you would happily write twice as big a tax check. up want to pay down our debt, get the economy roaring, get people back to work, 4% growth for a decade, 3 million people would rise out of poverty and be standing on their own feet. we need to be unjet lick -- un jetically -- unalocal jetically the party of growth. we need to get back to growth and number two, we need to get back to opportunity. you know, if you could sum up what went wrong last election, i th
magic of the obama machine. there was no counterweight. >> if i could follow quickly -- macro politics -- we saw it in this election, and i was shocked by it. macro politics has got to be filtered down into micro targeting. we do not have a national election anymore. we did not have a national election for president this year. we had an election of about eight states. the obama people were smart enough to figure that out. republicans were not. they went into those eight states and mined data. they did it on facebook, twitter, in all these places. they killed us. they spent tens of millions of dollars -- chris christie's top aide went to him in june and said he had been looking at obama's records and that they were in trouble. millions and millions and millions of dollars finding people. it was the 2012 equivalent of what i did in 1994. i had no money, so i got the super republican list, and for a year, i went door-to-door and walked on doors of republicans that voted in primaries. i did not talk to anybody else for 18 months. my kids, my wife, a little bit, but outside of that -- but t
minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h
the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker

. secretary of transportation ray lahood announcing he's stepping down. he's the only republican in the obama cabinet and at least the sixth member to exit as president obama starts the second term. not clear where lahood is headed or what he'll do next. he does say he'll stay until the senate confirms his replacement. >>> this story fascinates me. for years this -- look at that map. nothing on it. this is all we knew of north korea's roads and cities. not much. just a blank canvas. but then the google chairman eric schmidt visited the country. now we have this. with the help of citizen mapmakers on the ground, one of the most isolated countries in the world has been mapped out. now, eric schmidt, after he took this visit, says that this timing is just a coincidence. >>> well, a close call in australia, major flooding across the northeast is churning up sea foam. you got to see these pictures. it is blowing on shore. take a look at this. not snow, sea foam. in some areas that was nearly ten feet high. you see folks playing in it here. the foam is a result of algae blooms, believe it or not, c
campaign kicked off today. just after president obama took a public oath of office to start his second term in the white house. today secretary of state hillary clinton testified for the second time before stepping down for well-deserved rest. the topic, of course, it was the the 2011 2011 benghazi attack in libya that killed four americans including ambassador stevens. they were waiting for hillary clinton so they could forward the love of chris christie that they hate. today secretary clinton was wrapping up her current job with this forth right testimony. >> as i have said many times i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. >> john: secretary clinton later gave way to a rare display of public emotion when she talked about the risk that men and women of the foreign service take for our country. >> for me this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews.
there was this to say about the fact that the obama administration had not done anything about benghazi and then we will bring you up-to-date on her forecast. >> the important thing is what happened afterwards, which is nothing. they never hunted down and retaliated correspondent. and by failing to respond we know who did this attack. we know where the training camps are. by failing to respond we have given them a green light to hit us again. lou: and they did. more americans dead in north africa, algeria this time. this is an administration -- and let me turn to mitchell. is it your judgment that this administration is pursuing right now those who have perpetrated the murders of our ambassador in benghazi, killed three americans at least in algeria. >> no, i don't think that there is a lot of evidence that they are aggressively pursuing this, and it is not just what happened before, during, and after. this is much more broad than what happened in one city in libya. four of our embassies and consulates were attacked on september 11th. there have been anti-american demonstrations across the region ,
obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president that bankrupted america. so all of us around this table, regardless of our political stripes, have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that doesn't happen. and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence so we can have our voices heard as to do we really want to send $55 million to indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rates in indonesia when we have babies here who could probably benefit from the same expenditure? i think that's about enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of cumulative leave play, and the lord blessed it to get into sell of $100 million of net worth, and the success i've enjoyed comes from, i believe, three things. one is the fact that the workers or that god put in my life, 70 people who helped me pick stocks, interact with the clients and, secondly, was a hospitable governmental environment. you had a taxation and a regulato
, unfortunately, under president obama's presidency. does it concern you, chief, that federal prosecutions per month in 2011 compared to those in 2010, the number of filings went down 7.9% and were down 28.8% from 2006 in federal court. does that concern you? >> i can tell you that in the baltimore police department -- >> i'm asking if those numbers concern you. >> no, because you are not including local prosecutions. i cannot stand here and tell you of a single case in baltimore county where a gun was involved that was not prosecuted. >> are we trying to pass a state or federal law today? it is a federal law we are trying to enforce. and with regard to the crimes of carrying a firearm during the violence or drug trafficking offense, those prosecutions declined. 5%.5. i would say that, first, we need to make sure we are doing our job. i would also note that although crime is a very important matter, we should never lose our emphasis on bringing down crime. the murder rate in america today is half what it was in 1993. we have made progress on that. and we can continue to drive those numbers dow
